The Secret Teachings of the Ancients

From time immemorial there has been in existence a body of knowledge available to whoever had a sufficient inclination to investigate it. Within it can be found universal/archetypal principles and laws of nature that provide a means to discover a level of awareness that is literally unfathomable and indescribable from that which we are ordinarily conscious.

This website focuses on these teachings specifically through a practical philosophical approach known as Vedanta, which represents the basic tenets of the Sanatana Dharma (better known as Hinduism). Vedanta literally means the "end teachings" or the distilled essence of the Vedas which, in turn, means "sources of knowledge or wisdom." (Please bear in mind that the basic ideology comprising the framework for this method is found in virtually all the major spiritual philosophies (religions) of the world. As such, this method has been chosen over other equally valid methods not because it is saying anything fundamentally different but because it appears to be saying it more articulately, thoroughly and directly, and therefore more effectively.)

What is to be found in these pages is the dissemination of a doctrine based not on dogma or theory, but is the result of first-hand experience. This, in turn, has been cross-referenced with and further expounded through various sources from Quantum Mechanics to the scientific-philosophical insights of Krishna, Christ, Buddha, etc. Obviously, such a statement is likely to cause dissension within the scientific community; however, it is being made on the basis and result of an investigation which has pierced the typical emotional stratae of religious idealism and entered the domain of a verifiable psychology. Among other things, it relates to an integration of the salient concepts unique to quantum theory and 'deep metaphysics' (those familiar with the new physics may want to check out quantum theory as it relates to metaphysics). In this regard, it can be said that the so-called 'secret teachings' comprise a body of knowledge that is Universal and, furthermore, available to anyone with a fluid/pioneering mind who's willing to conduct an unbiased investigation.
